Hologram Teen is the solo project of Morgane Lhote, the keyboardist who did a record-long stint with legendary French trailblazers Stereolab, with them through the releases and years that categorized them as a seminal group and pretty much made them a household name. She recently released a vinyl 7” via London’s Deep Distance label and is gearing up to release the next single on vinyl via another London label – Happy Robots Records. She’s put together a video mixtape for us below, but first catch her previous single at http://soundcloud.com/shameless-promotion/sets/hologram-teen-post
Thanks for asking me to contribute a playlist for I Heart Noise. This playlist has no rhyme or reason, just some random stuff I love listening to with cool videos:
From Air’s label Record Makers, Acid Washed deliver innovative and fun dance music. This track has some wicked chord changes and is also my ringtone, FYI.
Bruce Haack built his own electronic instruments and made weirdo music. The Electric Lucifer is also my favorite album cover of all times.
Haunting Baroque Pop melodies. The rest of the album “Have You in My Wilderness” is well worth checking out too.
Ace Dub Pop single from Britishman Sam Dust, which I discovered via the excellent radio station KCRW here in sunny Los Angeles.
This has to be the most depressing song of all times… But strangely uplifting as well.
I could listen to this song over and over again. Bittersweet zombie choirs and analogue synths make for a most unsettling and catchy tune.
This is my favorite track of the Birkin/Gainsbourg powerhouse. Morbid lyrics about dead celebrities and catchy keyboard lines on a French TV set trying to recreate the NYC subway.
My favorite track of 2014, released on the Spanish label Suara, who only feature cats on their covers and also run a foundation for homeless kitties. I think my heart just melted…
Can’t afford drugs? This is cheaper.
Post Giallo/Goblin goodness from Detroit Synth-Rock trio Voyag3r.
